* Long Term View: by focusing in long term results, we find it easier to ride out short term volatility. Investing is a Marathon, not a sprint; Time is an ally.
* Absolut Returns: our goal is to achieve stable returns, not to outperform benchmarks year by year. We believe in the power of compounding returns as a way to accumulate wealth.
* Investment Discipline: we establish clear goals and make decisions based on previously structured strategies.
* Best Execution: we have access to the most advanced trading platforms and levarage our long standing relationships with most major financial institutions, which helps us to achieve better results for our clients.
* Global Vision: we take advantage of our experience investing globaly and the relationships we have mantained for over two decades with many international participants, particularly in Emerging Markets.
* Diversification: we believe all portfolios should be invested in multiple asset classes across sectors and regions. We balance our portfolios periodically to target the proper mix.
* Tactical Approach: we try to take advantage of market inefficiencies that are present from time to time; asset value misconceptions are opportunities.
* Liquidity: we invest in assets that are actively traded and/or those that are marketed by multiple participants. Liquidity Risk is one that has been widely overlooked during the past financial crisis.
